To Our Family and Friends,
The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
God is our Father
Jesus is our Elder-Brother
We are Brothers and Sisters
“I am so glad to be a part of the Family of God.”
A Year of Increased Kingdom Advancement and a Greater Harvest
Doing our Part, Actions Required:
Being Gospel Centered
Serving in Humility
Priority: something given or requiring special attention; preceding others in rank or order, taking precedence, first in order.
The Model Prayer
We will maintain our emphasis of the Biblical priority and privilege of Prayer:
Jesus was asked by His disciples for Him to teach them how to pray. We have provided for us the Lord’s Prayer or the Model Prayer as the instruction He provided.
Please revisit this familiar prayer and measure your prayer life per Christ’s teaching: Matthew 6:9-14
“This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one. For if you forgive other people when
they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
Pray First, Pray Always, Pray in all things…Pray!
Grace and Peace,
National Field Director

Sunday May 21st is our Global Outreach Emphasis Day for ACTS2DAY Ministries!
Please inform and remind your pastors, local churches and leaders. Please ask God what He would have you give this year to make help make a difference.
We believe in Global Outreach! We couldn’t do it without YOU!
Moments before He ascended to heaven, Jesus commanded the church to “GO!” and make disciples of all nations. When you give to the annual IPHC Global Outreach (GO) offering, your money turns into ministry on the mission field–both in the United States and around the world. We challenge every IPHC member to give at least a “day’s wage” of $124 to the GO offering, as the average day’s wage of a worker in America can make a tremendous impact overseas. Your generous donation helps share the Good News with those who need it most!
75% of the Global Outreach offering is given to World Missions Ministries for ministry projects led by missionaries and national workers, churches, outreaches, developing new works, and promotion. The remaining 25% of the Global Outreach offering is used by Evangelism USA to plant and develop churches in America. 100% of your donation is used to make a difference!
“To get nations back on their feet, we must first get down on our knees.”
